July 7-9, 2017

For a summer vacation the whole family will love, all you'll need to pack is a sense of adventure and fun! Inspired by Jules Verne's classic novel, Around the World in 80 Days, this weekend will feature food, music, crafts and games from the regions that Phileas Fogg and Passepartout visited. We'll have fun with disguises and dress-up, and enjoy a special reader's theater performance at Cabaret followed by a foreign film festival for teens. Book lovers and folks of all ages will enjoy gathering to unpack some of the novel's enduring themes. The perennial pleasures of an early summer weekend by the lake, on the trails or at the campground offer opportunities for spiritual renewal and relaxation. We hope you will join us for this inter-generational weekend which truly has something for everyone!

 Facilitators:

Shiri Dembovich is a mother and teacher who enjoys bringing literature to life as community building experiences.

Regina Baird Haag is co-executive director of Powell House, a life-long lover of great fiction, and is interested in having fun with folks at PoHo.
